The fold differences of each cytokine response to M. tb PPD between Gambian and Malawian infants, Gambian and UK infants. The cytokine responses to M. tb PPD were compared among Malawian and Gambian infants who were vaccinated at 1 week after birth, and UK infants vaccinated between 3-13 weeks of life [18]. d,f The fold differences of each cytokine response to M. tb PPD were calculated by dividing the median values of Gambian infants by Malawian infants with early vaccination and by dividing the median values of UK infants by those of Gambian infants, respectively. eP values for the median differences of each cytokine response to M. tb PPD between the two groups (Mann Whitney test).
